One of the joys of my life is to go thrift store shopping and find old treasures that I can refurbish and reuse. This past week I found a pair of gold faux-pearl earrings and took them home for $1. I actually liked the earrings as they were, but the pearlescent paint was slightly chipped. So, I decided to repaint the earrings in a subtle cool-mint shade. All you need for this super simple DIY is a pair of old earrings and nail polish of your colour choice!
I've actually seen a lot of tutorials online where bloggers use bright neon nail polish to paint over silver rhinestone jewelry. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the neon necklace trend... it reminds me too much of those oh-so-cool neon tracksuits from the 80's. Using this subtle minty shade of nail polish on these earrings suits me better.
Anyway, let me know what you think! If you decide to try it out, I'd love to see pictures of your projects!
